It's a daily struggle.

With everyday struggles including overworking, a limited social life, and decreasing family interactions, it is easy to get lost in the future.

We constantly think about what comes next, so we forget to enjoy the moment that we are in right now.

Being so consumed with the future kills the relationships and the moments that we are currently experiencing.

Find the courage to change.

Seeking out mental health services is an act of courage.

It is not easy to reach out for help from someone whom you do not know; however, as scary and uncomfortable as mental health counseling can be initially, it can also be exactly what you need to get to your best life.

Living your best life

As a mental health therapist, I want to support you while you do the work that is necessary to live your best life – regardless of your current circumstances. My job is to empower you to trust and appreciate your true self.

Through mental health therapy, I can help you understand that self-love and self-care attract those relationships, careers, and experiences that you desire.

And in working with adolescents, I desire to help them recognize their potential, power, and value.

In our work together, you will develop a strong sense of self-worth.

Areas of focus

I will work collaboratively with you to empower and help you gain insight through a balance of acceptance and personal growth. I integrate various treatment models with my framework of person-centered mental health therapy.

In my several years of work with teens, I help them to recognize their potential. They will learn to understand and accept their weaknesses and respect their strengths.

Respect, empathy, genuineness, honesty, and humor are offered in my sessions so that you will feel comfortable enough to openly explore your own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

Who I am out of the office

I have been married 36 years to my high school sweetheart. We have been blessed with two amazing children (who are truly my best friends) and a wonderful son-in-law. My daughter and son-in-law have given me the two greatest joys of my life, two precious little boys.

My husband and I are happy empty nesters, and we enjoy spending our free time doing whatever we desire.

I enjoy reading, spending time with family, visiting beaches, and viewing YouTube videos. I love to read books including legal thrillers, dramas and biographies. I also enjoy traveling (with my dream vacation being a trip to Africa). I like watching cooking competition shows as well as trying out new recipes. My latest interest is learning how to play pickleball, something my son introduced to my husband and me.
